The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster, Lamborghini's super-crazy version of the already-insane Lamborghini Veneno, will do 221 MPH, courtesy of its 740 horsepower V12 engine. Not bad for a car without a roof.


No word yet on what the wind noise will be like when you're doing over 300 kilometers an hour in a car built solely out of angles, but I'm sure the thunderous wail of that engine should drown it out.

When you're paying $4.45 million for one, you deserve all the music you can get.

I like this car.

No I love this car.

I need a poster and a AUTOArt model of one at the very least.

This is sheer lunacy and I like it. Its both an exercise is how much LSD it takes to design something silly but also how much LSD someone needs to take to agree to pay 5 million more over a regular Aventador for a body kit with some exclusivity. I love it.

I guess this is Lamborghini selling out to the Middle East rich guys and its Lamborghini losing who they are as a brand. If them making batshit insanity like this is considered selling out, by all means they can go forward and do it!

(I'll ignore the fact that Lamborghini sold out a long time ago to Audi. The Gallardo is an all Audi production did you know that? No? Well now you do. I've shattered your world. You're welcome. Moving on.)
